Patrick Stewart is an English actor.
Born in Yorkshire, Stewart began acting at a very young age, joining the RSC in 1966. He made numerous television appearances, including as the arch-villain Karla in Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy as well as stage, making his Broadway debut as Snout in Peter Brook's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.
Stewart became a household name due to his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation. His gravitas and dignity in the role led to Stewart's other major part, that of Professor Charles Xavier in the X-Men film series. He continued to act on stage, winning the Olivier Award for Best Supporting Actor as Claudius in 2009's Hamlet.
Despite being worried as being typecast after Star Trek, Stewart later became known as a comic presence as he guest appeared in shows such as Frasier and Extras. He also became a greatly sought after voice actor, appearing in both The Simpsons and Family Guy, and as a regular in the latter's sister show American Dad!.
Stewart's strong baritone voice has been used several times in different productions, including in one of his most famous roles as Captain Jean Luc Picard in Star Trek: The Next Generation and one of the films based on the series, Star Trek: Insurrection. Stewart also performed an original song and dance number on the DVD extras of the fifth series "What You Mean to Me (Alphabetically Speaking)".
In addition, Stewart played Sergeant Dulvaney in the TV movie In Search of Dr. Seuss, where he sang "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling". In the 1999 adaptation of Animal Farm, he portrays the villainous pig Napoleon, and is one of several animals who sing the Animal Anthem "Beasts of the World".
